Converged Media Platform

An end-to-end converged solution enabling time, place, and quality shifting across traditional and non-traditional screens. Our technology allows the delivery of live, on-demand and downloadable television, both in and outside the home, with all user actions such as search, personalization, user settings, recommendations, and favorites managed in a cloud-based account management environment, rather than tied to specific devices or local hardware.

This cloud-based solution includes authentication and access control, DRM and media delivery and playback of live, on-demand, rentals and downloaded content across mobile phones, tablet computers, PCs, set-top boxes and Internet-enabled televisions.

Key features of our platform include the ability to pause, resume and transfer content - including live programming - between devices and equipment, as well as network DVR capabilities, allowing a user to time and place-shift content between devices for live, on-demand and recorded programming. A user can record on any platform, consume on any platform, and access his or her content and account settings on any platform.

MobiTV’s converged media platform allows users to personalize the way that they discover, organize, select, access and watch video programming, placing that user at the center of his or her personal programming experience. Other platforms may simply offer “TV everywhere”— the ability to deliver a program to the home TV, PC or mobile device. MobiTV’s platform goes further. It allows viewers to seamlessly shift media consumption between time, place and platform.
